Tokyo Electron Taiwan Hosts Charity Run Event for Children with Disabilities The First Step in a Marathon Effort to Realize Their Dreams / 踏出夢想的馬拉松 東京威力科創 為弱勢身障孩童而跑

Life is a marathon—or a steeplechase for some people

Tokyo Electron (TEL) in Hsinchu, Taiwan, a local subsidiary of the leading Japanese manufacturer of semiconductor and flat panel production equipment, is celebrating its 20th year by launching a charity marathon event in June as part of its commitment to the corporate social responsibility (CSR) principles.

They say life is a marathon, but it can be a steeplechase for some people. For children with disabilities, for instance, the course of life never runs smooth. They may have to go through daily rehabilitation routines to attain physical growth, or they may need special equipment and aids to communicate and socialize with others and discover the beauty and wonders of this world. It is our ardent wish to enable these children to take the first step toward realizing their dreams.

It was in this spirit that the management team of TEL in Hsinchu, Taiwan visited the National Nantou Special School and learned about the equipment and aids their students need, including voice-recording smart pens and eye-tracking control devices. The executives also interacted with children by playing a game with them. The game is not only enjoyable but also useful in encouraging them to move their body and augment their rehabilitation. The children had a fun time playing with characters wearing sumo wrestler and clown costumes.

The Run for Charity event held in June this year drew over 80 employee runners from TEL in Hsinchu, Taiwan. The company pledged to make a cash donation proportionate to the aggregate distance covered by the runners, and the amount of donation came to NT$536,500. The entire amount will be donated to the National Nantou Special School to buy special equipment and aids for children with disabilities to upgrade their studying environment. Under the Run for Love slogan, the company will keep cooperating with citizens to support the children with disabilities.



人生是一場馬拉松,但對有些人卻是一場障礙賽

今年是TEL Taiwan / 東京威力科創股份有限公司,在台成立20周年。作為日本第一品牌的半導體以及平面顯示器製造設備的領導先驅,為實踐「企業社會責任CSR」的精神和信念,TEL台灣子公司慶祝20周年的同時,於6月開始社會公益路跑基金募款計畫。
「人生是一場馬拉松,但對有些人卻是一場障礙賽。」對於先天障礙的孩童們,人生的跑道從此和其他人截然不同,面對每天復健練習,在人生的旅途上對彼此都有著不同的情感和成長,也因為有了先進的教育輔具,讓孩子們開始學習與人互動、溝通、接觸,更甚至探索這個世界的新奇與美好,希望能讓他們在未來的生活中踏出自己未來夢想下一步。
東京威力科創在6月一系列的公益路跑基金募集活動中,不僅是邀請員工參與路跑,公司的一級主管們並前往「國立南投特殊教育學校」校園參訪及參觀先進教育輔具,例如:觸控發音筆、眼控學習輔具等。另外並舉辦趣味競賽,裝扮日本相撲人及小丑,藉由趣味競賽的方式幫助這些特殊孩童們做一些簡易復健與路跑,與孩童們一同創造美好歡樂的夏日午後。
今年公益路跑活動共有超過80位東京威力科創同仁響應參與,累積基金為台幣536,500元整,並全數捐贈與『國立南投特殊教育學校』購置先進教育輔具給需要的身障孩童使用,讓這些有障礙的孩童們能夠開始有更多機會方便且自信地學習。東京威力科創邀請您一同關注弱勢身障孩童,Run愛傳遞 / Run For Love!
